I have tons and tons of buttons.  Most are from my mom collecting them through the years.  I started making these little flowers, as to showcase some of the cooler buttons.  And turns out, it's a somewhat addictive little craft.  Each flower is different, and you can mix and match any color felt or button you want.  They are held together with green wire.  I am thinking about making a wreath for my mom out of them.  We will see if I can get enough done...

They are lovely! I love them. And if you decide you want to use the buttons for another project you can still take them apart! Or if you find out one of them is worth lots of money...

what a good use of buttons, I love how every flower is different.  I have lots of odd buttons that are very pretty but not very useful. Your project has definately inspired me to do something with them.
